with Sal Minardi
Saturday, December 15 | 10:30 AM | $10 ($7 for Friends of SAC)
1 hour. All leves.
Let the whimsical environment of Light of the Ocean inspire you during this tranquil session of gentle exercise with deep breathing with Sal Minardi.
Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, some training forms of tai chi are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.
This class will start with a lite warm up followed by an 18 movement Tai Chi Qigong exercise, completing with a 24 or 67 Yang style Tai Chi form.
Practice your drawing skills in this three-session series with artist Linda Capello. Participants will practice drawing a live model through gesture sketches and longer duration observation. All skill levels are welcome, ages 16+. The classes will take place in our spacious theater allowing for ample physical distancing. Faces masks required.

In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times.
